    I met Bettina in Missouri, but could not get out to California, so couldn't need Jocelyn.

    We could not have finer representatives for the USA.

    Third-pace Gala Van't Schip was also a fantastic rider. She won in South Carolina, but only two got to go to South Africa for the final cut.

    Jocelyn

    WOW! Obviously none of them are "girlie" girls. Very impressive .

    Their riding styles were remarkably different from each other, though. While I can't speak for Jocelyn, I can tell you that Gala is a ballerina that gently guides her bike through the obstacles and Betinna runs that bike in there and shows us how it's done downtown!

    And then there was Shelby, who rides in Take No Prisoners style!

    Thanks Voni! I really feel inadequate now...After arriving home today from a 1000 mile trip, I "thought" I put the side stand down, and fell over in the yard .
